Athens has become a city full of loneliness. City’s dark side emerged slowly like being in a sickness period or mourning. Current era/stage of that evolution is still changing, or rather transformed into something else, more complex as a result of a continuous osmosis.
Today, however, Athens presents this mental landscape. It has the color of a permanent standby, but also trust that nothing can be as before. Perhaps in the future when this difficult period has elapsed, counting the time before and after the crisis, such as wars or famines.
This painting of the difficulty of the current situation is that it is the continuous depreciation and not the effect of an explosion. It has the characteristics of an insidious pass that goes life in other coordinates, initially uncertain, volatile, shallow and unbecoming.
Addiction and familiarity with the change of urban life and he is hypnotizing, follows the assumption that one is forced to do in front of the inevitable. It is a confession realism. But just in the condition of the assumption, urban loneliness, the loneliness of the passers and the belief that all of these are transient, give what we live currently the bitter feeling of moving to another era.
